Catering at Griffith and Griffith Food are proud to be Gold License Caterers.
What is a Gold License Caterer?
The Caterers Gold License has established minimum standards for caterers in the areas of hygiene in food preparation, the quality of cooking personnel and management, the existence of appropriate Workers Compensation and Product and Public Liability insurance. All of these are potential problem areas for unsuspecting customers of 'fly-by-night' businesses, and ensure that consumers are supplied with a quality product.
Many people only use a caterer on average three times in their life, for a wedding, an anniversary or a special birthday, and one incident of food poisoning can spoil what should be a memorable occasion. Unfortunately, many people don’t know what to look for when selecting a caterer.
